¿Qué aprenderé?

This course will provide you with a strong knowledge of the barriers and problems that can affect people on a day-to-day basis; thus, giving an excellent foundation upon which you can make a real impact in terms of reducing inequality and social exclusion in the world today. The degree is both challenging and stimulating, particularly as it is fully responsive to complex concerns such as mental illness, abuse, human rights, crime, injustice, loss and voice. It is imperative that you are fully prepared for the range of issues that can arise when working in such an important field. As a part of this, it is through encouraging you to reflect on your own and others values, beliefs and perceptions that will allow you to have a much better understanding of the wider societal issues that affect children, young people and families. In turn, this will contribute to your personal transformation not only as a learner, but as a future forward-thinking and autonomous professional. The programme has been designed to be highly responsive to the needs of those who have an interest in this field of enquiry and a strong desire to work in the challenging and innovative children, young people and families sector in general, but who do not necessarily have a clear career direction in mind. The content is therefore geared towards providing a solid academic base for progression into an assorted mixture of related careers, higher degrees, research and further postgraduate qualifications. This allows you to explore a range of options and goals as the degree progresses rather than being purely orientated towards one employment pathway or subject-specific further study.

The wider workforce needs professionals who have a sound understanding of what constitutes childhood and youth today, how they develop as well as how to meet the wide-ranging needs of children, young people and families in order to address any problems that may arise in their day-to-day lives. The programme aims to: provide a rigorous academic grounding in children, young people and families; provide progression routes into a wide range of careers; prepare you for the rapidly changing contexts of policy and practice in education, social policy, health and welfare. The Foundation Year offers you the opportunity to grow in confidence in academic study through the development of key skills and the exploration of diverse themes and cutting-edge developments in a large array of subject areas in Humanities and other Schools.
